CIA Findings on Iran

WASHINGTON - November 20 -

The Bush administration has denounced Seymour Hersh's latest piece, The Next Act: Is a damaged administration less likely to attack Iran, or more?"

In the article, Hersh writes: "The Administration's planning for a military attack on Iran was made far more complicated earlier this fall by a highly classified draft assessment by the CIA challenging the White House's assumptions about how close Iran might be to building a nuclear bomb. The CIA found no conclusive evidence, as yet, of a secret Iranian nuclear-weapons program running parallel to the civilian operations that Iran has declared to the International Atomic Energy Agency."

The following are available for interviews:

MacMichael, a former analyst for the Central Intelligence Agency, is a member of the steering committee of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity, which scrutinized Bush administration claims regarding Iraqi weapons of mass destruction beginning in 2002. MacMichael wrote the article "Crisis Over Iran -- Can It Be Defused?"
